BLOG TOUR: Wide Awake by Shelly Crane

The amazing, talented and NOW NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Shelly Crane has done it again! Wide Awake is outstanding!


A girl.
A coma.
A life she can't remember.

When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she's been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can't remember them. She can't remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can't remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the 'old her' makes her start to wish she'd never woken up. Her boyfriend breaks up with the new girl he's dating to be with her, her parents want her to start planning for college, her friends want their leader back, and her physical therapist with the hazel eyes keeps his distance to save his position at the hospital.

Will she ever feel like she recognizes the girl in the mirror?


Is it really possible for Shelly Crane to get better with each book?  Well, yes, she can.  

Best part of book: HELLO MASON!!!! *insert cheers* Mason equals perfection.  He truly is!! But, enough of my gushing over him.  Emma wakes up and does not remember anything from her life before the accident.  Everyone keeps coming around her and telling her who they are and who she was.  However, she knows them as strangers and she has no clue who she is.  Mason seems to be the only think that she can hold onto that seems right for her.  Once she began to learn how she was before the accident she did not like herself.  So, she changes and for the better.  

I loved every word of this book and in true Shelly Crane fashion she takes you on an emotional roller coaster.

Not so great about book: *pouts* Shelly made me cry! (again!) That is all!!! *wink*



YA author from a small town in Georgia and loves everything about the south. She is wife to a fantastical husband and stay at home mom to two boisterous and mischievous boys who keep her on her toes. They currently reside in everywhere USA as they happily travel all over with her husband's job. She loves to spend time with her family, binge on candy corn, go out to eat at new restaurants, buy paperbacks at little bookstores, site see in the new areas they travel to, listen to music everywhere and also LOVES to read.
Her own books happen by accident and she revels in the writing and imagination process. She doesn't go anywhere without her notepad for fear of an idea creeping up and not being able to write it down immediately, even in the middle of the night, where her best ideas are born.
